Unseen City

Currently on view in the Guildhall Art Gallery is a photography exhibition by Martin Parr. By over saturating color, Parr creates vivid photographs of the city of London. His viewpoints provide a unique glimpse into the ceremonies and events that take place in this historic city. My personal favorite, the Musketeers at the Poulters’ procession. The juxtaposition of the Musketeers in their uniform marching in front of a Pret-a-Manger, creates a cheeky composition.
